Oh, I think you will love this lens! I love mine. It weighs a bit (mine is an older one) but it sure does perform nicely.

Thanks Rosemary and Thomps --
It is a very good lens. I did manual focus with this shot. I also wanted to get one while they had the $90.00 rebate

No it is not just your monitor it it a bit grainy -- I think I shot it at ISO 800.

It may look grainy, but it doesn't detract one bit from the photo. A good capture and composition, with complimentary colours.

In 2018 they'll have a special function key to get that old Pentax grainy look. It actually makes the main subject that much more captivating.

A little over-sharpened and too much crop.

But the moment you captured is just simply amazing!
